Hello! My name is Caitlan, many refer to me as Cait, and I am one of Dr. Kwon’s dental hygienists. I grew up here in Indiana and attended Plainfield schools. I am happily married to Bryce, who will graduate IU Dental School in 2018 and as you can imagine there is a lot of “tooth talk” in our house. Bryce and I have two Labrador Retrievers and a kitty who we adore a treat like children! I am an outdoorsy girl who loves to hike with my dogs, run, and spend time with family. I have been dead set on becoming a dental hygienist since I was a sophomore in high school, and earned my dental hygiene degree through the Indiana University School of Dentistry. The reasons I love this career are abundant; but the reasons I originally chose this path was because I get the opportunity to work in a small office with a dental team that feels more like family, to build lasting relationships with patients, and to impact lives in a positive way. Contrary to what many may believe, I genuinely LOVE to clean teeth, too! Yes, I am an one-of-a-kind gal! You can count on me to do my best to make you feel comfortable during your appointments and to educate and motivate you to achieve your optimal oral health.
What’s the best thing you’ve seen, listened to or read lately?
I recently read a book “Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway” by Susan Jeffers. This was an inspiring read and I highly recommend it!
Tell us something most people don’t know about you?
Most people do not know that I lean more toward the introverted side of the spectrum. It is strange because unlike most introverts I am not shy and still love to socialize, but I really do need my alone time to re-energize.
